How did you send the file? Make sure that if you use Apple's Mail tool, 
that "Send Windows Friendly Attachments" is checked in the file 
selection dialog box (it can be set in the preferences as well). 
Otherwise PC users will not be able to open the file at all.

Version 7 is way better than version 6 (especially after disabling 
about half of the plug-ins).
